Joe Rogan has always been the talk of the talk. The popular UFC commentator and podcast superstar has now received more heat than ever.
Joe Rogan has managed to keep his cool even after he was surrounded with controversies and he personally felt that it was important for the fans to know how he was dealing with it.
Joe Rogan is one of the pioneers in the world of podcasts and is still the most popular podcast in the world. The veteran UFC commentator got into massive trouble after he was accused of spreading misinformation about the vaccine and had even used racial slurs on his podcast, several times.

Several artists, who stream on Spotify, have requested the platform to take strict actions on this issue and had even demanded that his podcast should be removed from the platform.
“Cancelling voice is a slippery slope” – Spotify CEO condemns Joe Rogan’s actions but doesn’t believe in silencing him.
Daniel Ek opened up about the controversy and said, “Not only are some of Joe Rogan’s comments incredibly hurtful — I want to make clear that they do not represent the values of this company. I know this situation leaves many of you feeling drained, frustrated, and unheard.”
He condemned Joe Rogan’s actions but does not believe that he should remove or silence him from the platform.
“We should have clear lines around content and take action when they are crossed, but canceling voices is a slippery slope,” he writes. “Looking at the issue more broadly, it’s critical thinking and open debate that powers real and necessary progress.”
Spotify Had Removed Joe Rogan’s Content But People Are Still Looking For It Online
Spotify was also alleged to remove 113 episodes of “The Joe Rogan Experience” from the platform.
One such episode that caught the most eyeballs was, however, still on the platform. The episodes that had actually disappeared did not have much to do with the ongoing controversy over the researchers who talked about Covid.
Michael Malice was the first to notice that the episodes had disappeared and tweeted out on Friday that two of his appearances had been removed.
People are still looking for the missing episodes online and OG JRE is one of the sites that are providing the removed episodes. They have put up all the episodes of Joe Rogan including the ones that were banned from Spotify.
